Where to look online (or who to ask) for current Amtrak management retiree pass policy regarding reservations, sleeper space, dependent travel, annual trip limits, etc.

If you want info "on the dole" go to a manned station and ask the agent. They should know right off as they are the ones who cut the tix. Otherwise, they have instant access to the computer and will probably make you a print out if you ask nicely. If all else fails you can call D.C but that would be my last move. :ph34r:

Thank you. Station agent said my RTPC is valid and expires in the year 2044, I'll expire before then. 1-800-USA-RAIL said call Pass Bureau at 1-800-424-0224. Pass Bureau is mailing pass policy pile of paper to me, nothing online.

I think that the year 2044 is just a placeholder -- it's supposed to be good for life. Maybe they are betting you won't live that long? :)

Old railroaders never die, they just roll away! ;)

James,

Since we are not Amtrak workers and Amtrak does not run this forum, short of some advice from other retired workers with passes, there is little that we can do to help you. We certainly cannot intervene on your behalf with Amtrak.

Therefore, I have removed your personal info, namely your address & phone number.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

My husband was a 40 year employee the railroad. He passed away 3 years ago. Can I, his widow, use his pass?

Hi,

Please be aware that this website is 100% not part of Amtrak nor any other railroad business... It is simply run by amateur rail enthusiasts... It seems that your best way to find that information would be to contact the telephone numbers listed above, on the first few posts here.

Ed :cool:

Christopher - you need to contact Amtrak. This forum is not part of or affiliated with Amtrak. We can't answer your specific question. Please contact Amtrak direct.

You need to provide the pass bureau with written proof of your daughter's full-time college student status.
